Information About the Society

The society of Auricular Acupuncturists was formed in 1977 with the aim of training people in the complementary therapy of auricular(ear) acupuncture. Members are trained fully in this specialised field and adhere to a strict Code of Conduct. The Society has its own Malpractice and Public Library Insurance and is a member of the B.C.M.A (British Complementary Medicine Association). Our members are dedicated professional therapists in this specialised art. Training is approx. 6-8 months. Tutorial classes are very small.

What is Auricular Acupuncture and How Does it Work?

Simply explained, Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture is a specialised complementary therapy where acupuncture points on the outer ear are treated, using either needles or electro acupunctoscopes to help relieve many chronic complaints, e.g Anxiety, Arthritis, Asthma, Back Pain, Depression, Drug Addiction, Hay Fever, Insomnia, Migraine, Obesity, PMS, Sciatica, Sinusitis, Stopping Smoking, etc. There are over 200 acupuncture points on the outer ear, each point named generally after areas of the anatomy, e.g knees, hips, shoulders, liver heart etc. The outer ear acts similar to a switchboard to the brain, and when acupoints on the ear are stimulated, they trigger electrical impulses to the specific area of the body that is being treated.
